At Parents And Children Together (PACT) we are genuinely passionate about helping families thrive. We believe that every child deserves a loving and supportive home and we are committed to providing the highest quality services to help make that a reality.

We have been at the forefront of adoption services for more than 60 years, working with local authorities across the country. We offer a flexible and innovative work environment, and we are proud of our three successive outstanding ratings with Ofsted.

We support children and families from diverse backgrounds. With access to our specialist therapeutic support services, we are proud to provide excellent lifetime support for our families’ adoption journeys.

Our adoption teams focus on assessing prospective adopters who can consider early permanence and/or adopting a wide range of children of all ages, sibling groups of two or more children, children from diverse ethnicities and children who may have physical or learning disabilities.

With your social work experience with children and families, you will manage all aspects of work with our valued applicants from the early stages of recruitment, information sharing meetings, assessment, preparation and training, through to successful placement and post placement support up to the making of the adoption order.

Ideally, you will have previous experience of completing Prospective Adopter’s Reports, or similar reports such as Form Fs, and/or experience in family finding activity for children requiring permanence.

For further information and details on how to apply, please visit our website, here you will also find contact details for an informal discussion about the role or a chance to meet a member of the management team informally at our Vauxhall office.
